I WAS SOLD UNTIL I LEARNED NO SIGNAL PASS-THROUGH

 

I own an older RDR-GX300 which offers signal pass-through. The MC10 is a newer model and they've regressed. I wanted to upgrade to this because my RDR model weighs 10 lbs and takes up lots of table space. It's so useless to have outputs on this device...

Portability, Display Screen ;

NO SIGNAL PASS-THROUGH ;

GREAT LITTLE RECORDER (that could)

 

I found it rather ironic, that I can take an SD card out of my Canon HF-10 and copy AVCHD files to a DVD in seconds, but I cannot use the Firewire iLINK input to record directly from my SONY HDR-FX1000 WHY? LET THE BUYER BEWARE, even though this is...

Sony missing the boat again.

 

No commercial disc playback, No playback from any discs other than what's burned from this unit. No audio monitoring while recording. No video or audio passthrough to external components while recording (EE).

Stylish, compact design ;

Lots of basic features missing ;

Solves lots of problems

 

This appears to be a wonderful, if expensive, solution to making DVD's from the Sony HDR-TG1 HDTV camera on a Sony VGN-TZ180 laptop computer. It is almost impossible today, as these Sony products either doesn't work together, or it takes hours with...

Solves a big outstanding problem ;

I highly recommend this product
